Imran’s diatribe against MQM is pre-decided like his Dharnas (sit-ins). A man subjecting Altaf Hussain to character assassination should first conduct his own self-examination, said Haider Abbas Rizvi at a hurriedly-called press conference an hour after PTI chief’s statement.
Rizvi said Imran’s provoking speech against the MQM is highly condemnable. The MQM leader kicked off his press talk calling it ‘Black Day’ of politics today.
He asked, “Is current politics heading towards minus-one formula?”
Reacting to Imran’s announcement of filing defamation suit against MQM chief in London, he said Imran should fulfill his desire and move ahead with his plan as he did in the past [in vain].
He called PTI a political wing of banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan
He said Imran wants to shatter national unity against terrorism. He said each and every worker of MQM was disheartened and disappointed.
He added that we [MQM] and people have got the hang of this conspiracy against the MQM.
In a veiled criticism on PTI sit-ins, the MQM leader said “what happened during Islamabad dharna is not under wraps.”
He said Imran ended his ‘failed’ sit-in of Islamabad under the pretext of Peshawar school attack.
